National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships 2019

19 Mar

The indoor rowing season concludes with one of the largest adaptive rowing events in the UK – the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships – at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. With over 70 junior adaptive entries in 4 divisions, the competition was as intense as the atmosphere was electric.

The KS4 medalists saw the return to the podium for all the winners with Georgia Walker (Marlow) defending her gold, and KS3 Girls winner from last year, Jenna Maunder (Solent), grabbing silver as she graduated from from KS3 win last year, while last year’s silver winner Lesny Mosa took bronze.
